Check out the Enterprise ActiveMQ Webinar

Besides the sure to be fun FUSE meetup next week in Boston there's also going to be a great Webinar next week on August 19th covering using ActiveMQ in an Enterprise environment given by Rob Davies.  To attend you just need to go to fusesource and signup

Rob will be covering several key topics such as Failover, high availability and scaling, along with covering some of the new features in the upcoming ActiveMQ 5.4.0 release.  Don't miss out!

End of Summer Reading

Just in time for that late August vacation there's two really cool books coming out from Manning: ActiveMQ in Action and Camel in Action

To get a taste of what's offered in these books fusesource has exclusive excerpts available for free (no registration required):
- Chapter 9: Learn about using transactions with Camel
- Chapter 5: Learn how messages are stored in AMQ on KahaDB

Even better is that there's a great discount for both books, and all you have to do isstop by the fusesource site to find the 40% discount code you can use when ordering from the Manning web store.
Having just finished the ActiveMQ in Action book I can say its packed with great information that you can use when getting started with ActiveMQ and even for those that have been using it for awhile there's still plenty to take away from this book.
Camel in Action is already on the top 15 bestsellers list at Manning which should tell you something about the interest in Camel.  I plan on picking up a copy soon myself.

Don't miss out on the FUSE meetup next week.

Next week there's a couple of really cool events going for those who want to learn more about ActiveMQ ,Camel, ServiceMix and CXF, plus you can meet many of the people that are active on those projects. 

First up there's an event poolside at the hip Indigo Lounge on Tuesday evening, August 17th.  This should be a lot of fun (wish I was going), make sure you sign up so we know you're planning to attend.
